Textured/Rustic Buttercream Iced wedding Cake

buttercream-wedding-cake-a84-new

Textured or Rustic iced wedding cakes have become very popular in the past few years. Here we have this 5 tiered wedding cake with a rustic finish accented with the added texture of buttercream rosettes on the bottom tier. All iced in buttercream, this cake is highlighted with a beautiful cascade of buttercream flowers and an added pearl shimmer finish to soften the edges and give it some shine. Cake jewelry could be added to this design to give it some extra bling, or we could customize to a color palette for the buttercream flowers. The inside of this particular wedding cake is our chocolate mousse with fresh raspberries; a delicious combination for seasonal fresh fruit.

Fun First Birthday Cake Ideas

We posted some great first birthday cake ideas starting with this beautiful hot air balloon cake. Iced with fondant and decorated with hot air balloons on the bottom tier gives the cake a soft light appearance. We added an over sized number one on the second tier and topped it with a 3D hot air balloon.
